Fuel Cells Workshop

Within the scope of "Arbeitsgemeinschaft Elektrochemische Forschungsinstitutionen e.V. (AGEF)", the EWE Research Centre NEXT ENERGY and the University of Oldenburg are organizing a workshop.


NEXT ENERGY supports "Niedersachsen Technikum"

Within the scope of „Niedersachsen Technikum“ the EWE Research Centre provided an internship for a high-school graduate from Leer.


NEXT ENERGY takes care of system evaluation in research project "iHEM"

The research project iHEM started in July 2014. Together with its project partners the EWE Research Centre NEXT ENERGY is going to develop new concepts for building energy supply.


NEXT ENERGY ∙ EWE Research Centre for Energy Technology

Our energy supply system is in a state of transition. In order to achieve increased utilisation of renewable energies and improve energy efficiency, ideas, innovations and intelligent systems are required. The EWE Research Centre NEXT ENERGY is playing an active role in shaping both the conceptual and technological aspects of this transformation process.
Focussing on the research areas of Photovoltaics, Fuel Cells and Energy Storage systems, the Institute possesses expertise in three key technologies that are of increasing importance during the transformation to decentralised energy provision.

Where our expertise issues overlap we are also engaged in modelling and analysis of future electricity supply systems as well as in the building energy management. We develop the individual components of this – e.g. solar cells, PV installations, electrical storage systems and micro-CHP units –from the material to the system level. Optimally matched with one another, they will merge in future buildings to form intelligent control centres of the energy system.
